John was an ambitious man; he also was a fruit and livestock farmer while working in the manufacturing industry.

John did find time to marry the love of his life, Linda Robbins, on June 26, 1965, raising 3 sons together on the farm. He loved going to Florida for over 20 years, playing cards, going to the casino, playing golf, horse shoes, and camping. John could be spotted at the Montague V.F.
